Benson KOA

Indulge your Wild West fantasies near the Benson KOA, in a quiet, high desert valley just off I-10.

Benson is the gateway to Tombstone, Bisbee, Kartchner Caverns and Chiricahua National Monument. Apache Chief Cochise's stronghold is nearby. Tombstone hosts daily re-creations of the infamous O.K. Corral shoot-out. Tour an old copper mine near the Mexican border in Bisbee, where steep hillside streets and Victorian buildings evoke the mining boom days. Tour Kartchner Caverns and drive or hike past weirdly shaped rock formations in the Chiricahua Mountains. Pool: April 15 - Oct. 15. Max pull thru: 70 feet. Your hosts: Larry and Katie Hall.

Chiricahua National Monument

A "Wonderland of Rocks" is waiting for you to explore at Chiricahua National Monument . This forest of rock spires was eroded from layers of ash deposited by the Turkey Creek Volcano eruption 27 million years ago. The 8 mile paved scenic drive and 18 miles of day-use hiking trails provide opportunities to discover the beauty, natural sounds, and inhabitants of this 11,985 acre site. Visit the Faraway Ranch Historic District to discover more about the people who have called this area home: Chiricahua Apaches, Buffalo Soldiers, Erickson and Stafford families.   Chiricahua National Monument is located 120 miles southeast of Tucson.
